Capricorn Rising

Communication, travel, partnership, business, obligations, and responsibilities all may be in a state of transition in the early days of November, dear Capricorn, as three planets make sign changes in the lead up to the November 4th full moon in Aries.

First to make a sign change is Mercury, ruler of your solar 6th and 9th Houses, moving into sidereal Scorpio on the 2nd and bringing news from your 11th House of friends, organizations, hopes and dreams.


Venus changes signs the next day, moving into sidereal Libra for a three and 1/2 week long stay in your 10th House of career, achievement, and recognition just as she opposes Uranus. You could be recognized for your professional contributions or achieve a career milestone quite unexpectedly near the 3rd.


A mentor you know socially could give your career a boost by interceding on your behalf near this time.


Your ruler, Saturn, moves back into Sagittarius on the 4th, just in time for the full moon in sidereal Aries and your 4th House of home, family, and property. A home improvement project could be coming to a conclusion, just in time for the holiday season. Watch for a surprise in your home and family sector near this full moon.


Saturn will be touring this part of your chart for more than two years, teaching you the value of hard work, self discipline, and perseverance in very private matters. The 12th House rules privacy and seclusion, spiritual evolution, and our unconscious beliefs and thoughts. You’ll be challenged to mature in your spiritual journey, release limiting beliefs, and possibly to work long, hard hours alone on solo projects over this time.


This is a time for facing fears and shedding outdated thought patterns and escapist behaviors. It can also allow you the opportunity to let go of an addiction through the process facing your fears and sorrows, releasing guilt, and learning to develop greater self compassion. You can make great progress in working through unconscious self-destructive or self-sabotaging behaviors if you are willing to do the work.


Saturn will be in this part of your chart until late January 2020, so buckle in. If you are willing to make the effort to meet your challenges head on and learn Saturn’s lesson’s he’ll reward you before he leaves for good in late January 2020.


If not, you’ll likely find this transit difficult and filled with obstacles and limitations.

Near the 9th you could benefit professionally through the quiet, behind the scenes assistance of a VIP.


On November 11th Saturn makes his final trine to Uranus in a series of three the beginning of which stretches back to December of last year, allowing you to make the last of permanent, beneficial changes to your spiritual journey or a home and family situation. You may finally be able to create some long term structural changes for your home and private life at this time.


Check your natal chart to see if you have a planet or personal point at 1° or 2° degrees of a fire sign, Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, to find out if you are personally affected by this transit.


Venus conjoins Jupiter in your 10th House of career on the 13th, the same day Mercury sends a challenge to Neptune in your 2nd House of earned income. While this day has the potential to bring valuable career benefits, possibly even a partnership, news of an expense may come up. The good news is, a professional partner or valuable career reward could help offset the expenditure just a few days later, near the 16th.


Mercury enters the shadow of his December 3rd retrograde on the 14th, making the coming three weeks an excellent time to make a plan for putting the retrograde to use, while Mercury is slowing down.


He’ll be retracing his steps through Sagittarius and Scorpio this time, and any Mercury ruled work you do between now and December 3rd may come up for revision during his retrograde. This includes mental activities like analysis and research, writing, travel related activities, communication, sales, and commerce.


Prepare now, and you’ll have a much easier time navigating the retrograde when it comes. You can download a free excerpt from my ebook, The Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide, for all the guidance you need to help you get safely–and sanely–through any Mercury retrograde cycle. I give the most important details away for free.


You’ll want to get all of your most important holiday shopping done before this date, especially if you have big ticket items, electronics, or anything with moving parts on your list. If you can’t, the best strategy is to give gift cards. That way your loved ones can do their own shopping after the Christmas holiday, when the retrograde will be over. The January clearance sales in the second half of the month would be the prime time to go.

“A home improvement project could be coming to a conclusion, just in time for the holiday season. Watch for a surprise in your home and family sector near this full moon.”

Watch for an influx of cash or a gift of some sort near the 16th, whether you land new business through a partner referral, receive a professional award, or even a valuable gift which helps you further your career ambitions.


The sun enters sidereal Scorpio on the 16th, marking the beginning of his annual four week long tour of your 11th House of friends, organizations, hopes and dreams. You’ll be more socially active under this transit, and more likely to step into a role serving within an organization, cause, or focus on an important long held dream.


Near the 17th a friend or social contact could deliver good news which has you traveling or taking action on a publishing, broadcasting, or legal matter.


The new moon in Scorpio November 18th highlights your solar 11th House of friends, organizations, hopes and dreams, bringing an opportunity to expand your social circle, take on a role with an organization, begin a humanitarian effort, or begin working towards a dream that’s close to your heart. Watch within +/- 4 days of the new moon for news, or take action towards your dream within the ten days following the new moon, the closer to the 18th, the better.


This is a challenging new moon with the potential to bring both conflict and transformation and trigger power struggles over the coming weeks and months.


If you need the buy in of a VIP to make your initiation, be discreet in your request and wait to make it until the 21st, when this person will likely be more cooperative. Don’t make your move in the days near the new moon, when Pluto and Mars, Scorpio’s co-rulers, will be squaring off in the heavens in an aggressive struggle for control and influence.

Neptune finally stations direct on the 22nd after five months retrograde in your 2nd House of earned income and expenses. Watch for travel expenses to come up near this date, or you may find yourself spending money in your community as a few examples of how this day could affect you.


Hidden information, secrets or deceptions can come to light when Neptune stations, a possibility if you have a planet or personal point at 16° or 17° degrees Aquarius. Check your natal chart to see if you will be directly affected.


Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 25th, sending a missive to Uranus in your 4th House of home, family, and real estate as he does so. Unexpected news related to a family or property matter could come, and you may need to keep it hush-hush.


Mercury will only be here in Sagittarius for roughly two weeks before he heads back into Scorpio for most of December. He’ll make his return visit to Sagittarius after the new year.


On the 27th Venus begins her three and 1/2 week tour of Scorpio, gracing your social life with fun, enjoyment and harmony in the first weeks of December.

Pay attention to what comes up on the 28th, as you may find yourself having to revisit the subject until it’s been refined and polished to Saturn’s satisfaction.


Mercury conjoins Saturn on the 28th, the first in a series of three conjunctions between now and early 2018. While Saturn and Mercury typically only meet up once a year, Mercury’s retrograde will have him checking in with the taskmaster planet while first direct, then retrograde, and finally direct once again.


You may need to do sustained mental work on this day, such as writing or analysis or other Mercury-ruled activities.
